UV tubing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've got some orange UV tubing, if I use some UV cathodes to light them up, will the UV cathodes interfere with the red/orange cathodes I have in the case? will they work fine together, or will the red/orange ones 'drown out' the UV ones and make them not work on the tubing..or something o_o or the opposite, would the case end up looking violet-y from the UV cathodes drowning out the red ones?

Well if you own UV cathodes already, why not just try out. Because not all uv product companies use same materials on uv products, so its individual in my opinion.

Hello.

The UV tubing and the UV lights will work fine together. The effect in the case will be a combination of glowing tubing combined with ambient lighting.

If the effect is too bright (subjective), you could swap to something like This.

on the subject of CCFL's, should I get white ones and cover them with seethrough red paper (what is that stuff called exactly?) to get a good red, or just buy a red one (which will probably be pink looking) and cover it with the same red paper?)

Using a red CCFL as the base will result in an overall increase in brightness as less of the original light will be absorbed by the red paper.
